WINIX PlasmaWave® technology

The  Winix  Plasmawave®  technology  harnesses  nature’s  ability to clean the air and recreates the  natural,  safe  and  effective  process  that  purifies  air. Our technology creates  a safe  &  short  electrical  discharge  to  create  dual  polarity  ions  (positive  and  negative)  and disperses  them  into  the  air.    As  the  ions  attach  to  the  surface  of  air  pollutants,  such  as bacteria  or  viruses,  they  naturally  remove  hydrogen  from  the  molecular  structure  of  air pollutants,  thus  eliminating  them  and  resulting  in  cleaner,  fresher  air.

Main benefits of PlasmaWave®

  • Greatly reduces odours from everyday  smells  such  as  bodily,  cooking and  smoke
  • Protects indoor  air  by  reducing  mould  growth rates.
  • Increases air  purification  performance  by  reducing  static  electricity  so  air  pollutants are  captured  by  the  air  purifier  airflow  directing  them  into  the  multi-stage  filtration process.

How does it work?

  1. PlasmaWave® technology creates  a  short  electrical  discharge  to  create  dual  polarity  ions from  air  moisture  that  are  dispersed  into  the      This  electrical  discharge  is  safe  and only  occurs  for  a  short  period  of  time  (nanoseconds).
  2. These are  +  hydrogen  (H+)  and  –  oxygen  ions  (-O2).    The  ions  attach  themselves  to  surface of  air  pollutants  to  form  Hydroxyls  by  removing  hydrogen  from  the  structure  of  air
  3. This interaction  removes  air  pollutants  and  allows  the  ions  to  use  the  missing  Hydrogen ion,  which  was  removed  from  the  structure  of  the  air  pollutants,  to  return  as  air  moisture  (H2O).

Why is Plasmawave® better than other technologies?

Plasmawave®  Technology  can  be  incorrectly  mislabelled as an “Ionizer” or confused  with negative  ion  generation  technology. Our  technology  is  far  superior  because  it  produces  both  positive  and  negative  ions  while ionizers  only  produce  negative  ions. Negative ion air purifiers  do  not  eliminate  air pollutants. Instead, negative ions force contaminant  particles  to  group  together  so  they are weighed  down  onto  the  surface  of  furniture  and  floors. Everyday  activities  such  as  walking or vacuuming can reintroduce these contaminants  by helping  them  become airborne once again. Only Plasmawave®  technology  effectively  reduces  the  concentration of air pollutants.

Is PlasmaWave® safe?

Plasmawave® meets the California Air Resource Board’s AB 2276 standard, which is the most rigorous American certification benchmark for indoor air cleaning ozone-emissions. To attain compliance, air  cleaning devices must be tested for electrical safety  and  have ozone  emission  ratings  below  the  0.05  parts  per  million  limit.


Invluenza Virus Removal
Test performed by Yonsei University labs concluded Plasmawave® technology reduces the rate of love influenza virus by 99.6% in 1 hour.


Electrical & Mechanical Safety
Plasmawave® complies with UL safety and mechanical constructions standards.


Ozone Emission Safety
All WINIX products are certified by the California Air Resource Board to ensure Ozone emissions are below the air cleaner limit of 50 part per million ozone emission limit.
